Reader Kevin Thompson sent us a tip on a small town small business:
I wanted to see if you’d be interested in writing about one of my good friends. He owns a business with his brother selling hunting and fishing knives (and other stuff) that just reached its 10 year anniversary. Given that this is the age of the super-stores and chains, it’s a pretty big deal. Plus, they are a great bunch of guys based in a small town in Alabama, they share much of their success with their employees and their stuff is good quality.
Any business that can start as two brothers in a small town, and can make it to celebrate 10 years, deserves a bit of recognition!
